Domestic Goddess? hmmm not exactly.....

I made this layout from my January Studio Calico kit, yes I have only just broken it open and yes, I have only completed one layout.  These photos were taken on New Years Eve while I was making apricot jam and a gooseberry pie.  The title is ironic as I am far from a Domestic Goddess in way, shape or form ;)  However I like doing things like this with my mum so it was a nice way to spend New Years Eve plus I didn't feel shady the next day which is definitely a bonus.   I certainly don't miss hangovers from my misspent youth..



Everything I used on the layout is from the kit aprt from the alphas spelling out "goddess" they are plain chipboard ones from kaisercraft which I embossed with pipedream ink embossing powder.  I used one of my SU punches to do the notebook paper border.  I am not sure if the flair badge came from this kit or not. Also the washi is from my stash.

Thanks loads for coming by and leave me a comment so I can return the favor :)

Fabulous layout. You really brought all the colors together so well. Apricot jam sounds great. I love apricots and if I buy jam, that's what I get. Where do you find Gooseberries?
